Jess Wayne Band

Douglas Wayne Jessop, known professionally by his stage name Jess Wayne, is a Los Angeles musician, singer-songwriter, poet and writer. He is the principal songwriter, lead singer and guitarist for the Jess Wayne Band. He is making music with a groove for adults who have lived and know that life is complex, messy, muddy, simple and beautiful - all at the same time.
 
Jess Wayne’s music is a comfortable fusion of contemporary folk, chill blues, easy jazz and Americana music with “storytelling, wisdom and naked honesty.” The debut album, Ride The River, was released on June 10, 2016 and co-produced with noted Los Angeles arranger, composer and arranger John Matthew Rosenberg.
